Does anyone have any advice on how to prevent my Mum from messing with the fridge freezer plug? It is plugged in behind the fridge but on three occasions now ( not every day) she has pulled the fridge out, taken out the plug and moved it to a different socket where she usually plugs in the toaster. Then before she goes to bed, she switches off all her kitchen sockets so her freezer has defrosted overnight! Mum lives on her own and manages very well with support from us three children. Luckily my sister popped in today to take her some wine and realised the fridge was not switched on and has thrown out all the food. I don't think Mum actually uses the freezer anymore as she is not really cooking much, tending to eat out with us three or four times a week and live on salads, sandwiches, pies etc when on her own as she does not like ready meals ( we wonder if she can still use the microwave).. But we do need to make sure the fridge is left switched on. As a temporary measure, we are going to tape the fridge plug onto the wall in the socket behind the fridge in the hope that will deter Mum from moving it but I reckon she will just move the tape! Of course she denies moving the plug but no one else has been in the house! We were wondering if there is a lockable device which we can use to stop her being able to remove the plug from the socket. I have been reading posts here for ages and have found them very helpful. I think I will be asking for advice more frequently now as the symptoms of mums Alzheimer's get more advanced but so far she is still fine living on her own. We do find ourselves troubleshooting more frequently though!
